Raising Eyebrows


An irreverent and unorthodox memoir by Peter Roberts, a Rhodes Scholar turned diplomat whose career crossed the paths of those who made history in the last half of the twentieth century. From service as ambassador to the Soviet Union and Romania, and from being press secretary to Pierre Trudeau to heading the Canada Council, Roberts "has seen it all"… and he tells it all in an engaging and chatty series of mini essays all woven into a narrative of our times.

Now retired, Peter Roberts and his spouse Glenna divide their time between an art-filled pied a terre apartment in Ottawa and a country house in the Gatineau hills where he is at work on a new book on the return to the homeland campaign which saw so many misguided Canadians of east European origin lured to return to the misery of their communist ruled ancestral lands.
